      Travelling with kids in Futami area

      Ise Dec 14, 2014 at 7:22 PM

      Hi, we are planning to visit Futami area (Bunka mura and wedded rock) this winter. We will come from Yokkaichi and get off at Ise station. What would be the best way to go to Bunka Mura. I read that there is a bus that we can take to go there. How easy is it to use the bus? And from Bunka Mura to the rock, will it be possible to walk?

    • Transport options

      Sapporo Nov 26, 2014 at 12:24 AM

      I am traveling in a party of 9 pax, all adults. We will be in Hokkaido from the 14th to 23rd Dec. Upon arrival in Chitose Airport we will have a coach to transport us to Niseko - 4days. from Niseko we will then go to Noboribetsu - 2 days and then go to Sapporo City - 3 days before flying off to Tokyo for a connecting flight out of Japan. Need advise if it is easier and more efficient to arrange coach transport from Niseko - Noboribetsu - Sapporo given that we have nine adults or we should just rely on the train system? Which is cheaper and more time efficient given that it is winter and the roads maybe laden with snow.

      Okinawa Islands itinerary

      Japan Nov 30, 2014 at 9:22 PM

      Hi! First trip to the Islands :-) We are arriving Naha an early morning in the end of March. We have 4 nights before going to Kyoto. I know it’s a bit early going to the beach, but we want to go to Kerama Islands. Aka-Jima ? I’m a diver and want to spend a day diving. A half day whale watching if it’s not to late at the end of March ? Some suggestions for a 4 night itinerary ? Going straight from the airport to Kerama Islands and spend the last day / night in Naha ? Or is 3 night ”too much” on a small island ? Thank you very much ☺

      a strange costume - what is it ?

      Hiroshima Nov 23, 2014 at 2:31 AM

      I hope this is considdered a travelrelated question ! I saw this Person standing for almost 2 hours in the same place: he/she did not move, did not beg for Money, was always looking in the same direction and had a costume that I never saw somewhere else in Japan. These photos are taken in Miyajima, a holy Island, so maybe it has to do with religion

      by LoizosShakallis Online Now Feb 8, 2006 at 6:48 PM

      Hello I would like to find out some things about Tsukuba as I am planning to go there for a month for an exchange study program. Is it proposed by you as a destination rather than tokyo Chiba or yokohama? Is the cost as high as in Tokyo? Would you recommend Chiba for a European 23 year old student? How is the University?

      Thank you
